There are regular buses to Oxford town centre. There are also bus routes to Woodstock, Blenheim Palace and Banbury. Local roads give access to the M40 and M4 motorways which can connect you to areas such as the midlands, south Wales and the south west. The A34 will take you to the south coast within an hour and a half. The Cotswolds is within a 1 hour drive. Oxford Parkway train station is next to Kidlington and has a fast rail connection(1 hour) to London. The famous retail outlet, Bicester Village, is 10 minutes away via train from the station. There is also a coach station in Oxford town centre.

Heron Place has been designed and constructed for modern living. The apartments have Sky+ connection points in living rooms, walk in wardrobes in all master bedrooms, underfloor heating, camera video entry system for use with a standard TV and, for your peace of mind, a 24-Hour emergency call system and mains connected smoke detectors. The homeowners' lounge is a great space for social events and, for added convenience, there is a Guest Suite which visitors can book into for a small fee (usually around £25 per night - subject to availability). The dedicated House Manager is on site during the day to take care of things and make you feel at home. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, security and the energy costs of the laundry room, homeowners lounge and other communal areas.
